Tourism in Alexandria

Considering all these, the best time to visit Alexandria would be during the spring season - March to June. Or, the other best time to visit Alexandria would be in autumn - September to November.

Then, the climate is somewhat better than what it would be in summers. Another reason why you should avoid Alexandria during summers is because the city gets the busiest at this time, when the Egyptian folks from Cairo come down to the city to escape the heat there.
